About me and my passions

I am making this one of my pages and it will be something that I add to and maybe take away from in the future

I'm Katie, I am a Christian,
a wife,
an auntie,
And a wanna be mommy,
and Child passenger safety tech
(I am on my way)
there are a lot of things I am passionate about and I am working hard to "walk my talk" and be more authentic.  You will find that that most of these things are centered around family, babies, mothers, and birth.  If you don't agree with what I believe then I hope we can agree to disagree and still be friends. the world would be a boring place if everyone was the same.  

This is an ever changing list of things I am really passionate about and as I write blog posts about them I will add links I am not a writer and a lot of the time my thoughts are jumbled and random so bare with me :)

I Am for (in no specific order)

Car seat safety is my big one. I think it's absolutely inexcusable when a parent can't use a carseat properly or refuses to take the time to learn how to use it properly. It's the ONE thing a parent can do to ensure their kid's safety. I just can't understand why it's not a big deal to everyone... Don't get me started on it, I could go on for HOURS.

true informed choice/consent/refusal
expectant management of birth
cloth diapers
basic human and animal  rights
attachment parenting
Birth choice
Cruelty free living ...   

I Am against (also in no specific order)
routine infant circumcision (both male and female)
crazy  food additives
abortion in most cases
child abuse (but I think that falls under pro human rights)
ok  pretty much all the isms
abuse of power and brutality ... 

what are you passionate about are any of my "fors" your "againsts" or vice verse?


  1. Love this post. I already knew it about you but it just makes me love you even more. I'm so glad we're not only VERY good friends but also sisters!!!

  2. Nice to meet you. Now I feel really guilty because I think I am one of those parents who hasn't taken the five minutes to learn how to install a car seat safely. Do you have a good resource you could point me to. I don't mind if you share some of your passion with me :)
